Doom, Flashback, all LucasArts graphical adventures. I hate any game that involves flying or piloting something, i.e. X-Wing, Tie Fighter, Wing Commander, etc, etc

I don't remember the name... my cousin and I will still play it sometimes. It's got two apes on a skyline, and you throw bananas at each other. You estimate the angle and projection, and it throws the banana. You win by hitting the other ape. It runs fairly well on my cousins 486 laptop. ;)

Anyone ever splay Snipes? (no, it's not a FPS game)

Finally, another SkyRoads player. I played this game religiously (the first 6 shareware levels). It was so awesome, still is, too bad I never bought the full version. :(

I never played any simulator/first person games in dos.. I liked cardsharks, wheel of fortune, etc... They weren't that advanced, but still fun to play with - especially multi player!

Harpoon II. In 1994, the program REQUIRED 100 MB of disk space, 600+ base memory and ran at, if your machine could support it, 1024x768... Awesome Game!!

Runner up? Falcon 3.0
